followed the trail to Clear Hold P"t after a trip down town come
eoinitv. where he recovered the ' rushing in asking what time the
stolen animal but failed to cap
ture the thief. A short time af
terward constable ilarudollar
was driving into lOverett one dark
night, when he was hailed by a
man who inquired the best route
to Chambersburg. While in con
versation with the stranger, a
gentleman carrying a lantern ap
proached the buggy and Consta
I'.arndollar got a glimpse of tho
man he was talking too. lie in
stantly recognized him as the
horse thief described in a circu
lar he laid received from Ci recti
castle a couple of weeks before
who had stolen the horse he had
recovered at Cleariield.- lieiug
lato at night and in order to get
a better look at the man the offi
cer invited him to remain in town
over night at a hotel, promising
to drive him to his destination the
following day. To this offer, how
ever, the man objected and start
ed to walk away from the buggy.
As he did so Constable Barudol
lar jumped from the buggy and
started after him. Evidently
fearing that he had been recog
uized the man st.trted to run
away, when the officer lired two
shots from his revolver and cow
ed the fugitive. He then placed
him under arrest and kept him
in Everett that night. The fol
lowing day he took him to Ilar
risonville, Fulton county, for
ideutilication, the horse thief hav
ing stopped there on his way
from (Jreencastle with t'.ie stolen
horse. After fully identifying
the man the ofiicor started on his
return to Everett, having secure
ly handcuffed the thief to the
stays of tho buggy to prevent his
e.icapo. When they arrived at
the Mcllvaiuo Hotel on top of
Kays Hill mountain the man
pleaded to have the handcuffs
loosened from the buggy. As his
hands and wrists were badly
swolen the oflicer complied with
his request. Just after crossing
the top of the mountain the Con
stable noticed that Zimmerman
had dropped a letter. He stop
ped his horse and got out of the
buggy to get it. When he at
tempted to get in the buggy the
man pushed him away and jump
ed out at tlm opposite side and
made for the woods, The Con
stable tired a shot at the retreat
ing prisoner, which scared the
horse and it started off. While
securing the animal tho prisoner
made good his escape, A search
ing party was organized but the
horse thief could not be found.
Tlie same night a valuable horse
was stolen from the Buzzard farm
nearby. Tho thief was followed
to lioaring Spring, Ulair county,
where the trail was lost and the
horse and thief were never cap
tured. It was afterwaad learned
that Zimmerman had taken a
horso from a pasture Held a few
miles west of Bedford the night
he came to Everett and had left
it on tho outskirts of town, where
it was found the following day
and returned to the owner. It is
also said that several horsea were
stolen in this community the
same year and it is believed they
were all taken by tho same thief.
next train goes, as if we knew
who they were and where they
wanted to go. Tin y often ques
tion me about like this: 'What
time does the next train go to
the East End?' 'Four o'clock.'
'Well, isn't there one before tliat?'
'No, not before the next one,' I
say. I answered a lady in that
way only the other day. I guess
tlie absurdity of her last question
struck her when I did, for she
laughed, colored a little and walk
"A funny old lady came here
the other day. She asked all
sorts of questions about the train,
tickets, etc., and wound up with:
'I'm in from New Castle. You
don't know what butter's worth,
now, do you?'
"An old lady came up to the
window recentlyaud rapped sev
eral times to attract my attention,
evidently in great haste. She
wanted a ticket, and when I told
her that there was no hurry, as
her train would not start for half
an hour. 'No matter,' she said,
'trains sometimes start ahead of
time,' and off she went, as if she
didn't have a moment to loose.
Sometimes ladies will come up to
the window opening into the la
dies' room Rnd ask if they must
go outside to take the train. I
tell them that v.'e do not generally
bring the trains inside, and some
laugh and some look cross.
"Recently a woman that I am
acquainted with came from the
cars in the morning carrying a
baby. Late in tho afternoon I
saw her getting on tho train all
alone, and asked where her baby
was. 'There,' she said, 'I knew
I'd forgotten something, 'aud she
had just time to get her baby

Judge Taylor, of Washington
county, Pa., recently sentenced a
number of prisoners under the
provision of an act passed at the
last session of the Legislature,
permitting convict labor on pub
lic roads. So far us is known, he
is the tirst judge in Pennsylvania
to impose sentence under this
new law. The prisoners sentenc
ed had all entered pleas of guilty
or nolle contendere toiudictments
and business was disposed of in
quick order. It is probable no
more male prisoners from Wash
ington county will be sent to tho
Allegheny county workhouse, as
the act referred to, allows county
prisoners to be put to work eight
hours per day except Sundays
and holidays, and tlie law gives
preference to the improvement
of public thoroughfares, and
roads connecting directly with
tho county scatmustreceive what
ever benefits arise through the
operation of tho law.
Lo, this poor Indian, has gain
